Preferred Repeat For Hldontghttoyurdrms

Thursday, March 23, 2017  By: Standardbred Canada


Despite being assigned the outside post and battling through a wardrobe malfunction, Hldontghttoyurdrms came up huge in winning Thursday’s $11,000 Preferred 2 for trotters at Flamboro Downs.


With Alfie Carroll barking out orders from the bike, Hldontghttoyurdrms shot to the top from Post 7 and sliced out splits of :28.1, :59.2 and 1:29.2 before using a :29.4 closing panel to win by a length over Seeyou Men in 1:59.1. Allies Gift took home the show dough.


Sent off as the 8-5 favourite in the seven-horse affair, the Richard Moreau-trained eight-year-old son of Muscles Yankee-Sweet Gabriella improved his 2017 record to 3-1-0 from seven trips postward. The 28-time winner, who bumped his bankroll to $426,815, is owned by Frank Spagnolo of Ottawa, Ont.


In the $7,500 Preferred 3 for trotters, Dragin The Wagon powered to the lead and kept on trucking en route to a 1:57.4 score for driver Anthony Haughan and trainer Jeff Byron.


Haughan put the pedal to the metal and the gelding whacked out fractions of :28.3, :58.3 and 1:28.1 before scooting home in :29.3 to win by 1-3/4 lengths over Avuncular. Third prize went to Azucar.


Sent off as the even-money choice, the seven-year-old son of Angus Hall-Bridgeannika posted the win for owner James Cantelon of Thornton, Ont. The gelding owns 32 lifetime wins and a bankroll that sits at $223,416.
